The organization released its endorsement of Governor Kemp on May 5 ahead of the primary election, in which he won the Republican gubernatorial nomination.

“Time and time again, our governor has led the charge for our values ​​- ready to stand up to elites, media, pressure, Hollywood and woke institutions,” Cole Muzio, president of Frontline Policy Action, wrote in the ‘approval. . “And, through it all, I was privileged to see how he strove to walk with the Lord, cherish his family, and serve the people of this state. He is a man of integrity, a devoted husband and father, and a leader we can trust.

Less than a month later, on June 1, Frontline Policy Action emailed supporters with seven tips on how to “reject Pride”. Voice of Georgia got a copy of the email.

“In 2022, America, the month of June is co-opted by those who want to embrace evil, ‘groom’ our children, and seek to pass off their warped distortion of human sexuality as ‘normal’,” reads the statement. ‘E-mail. ” It is not normal. You don’t have to accept it. And, as a Bible-believing Christian, you are called to reject a radical ideology that encourages people to be “proud of sin.”

“The LGBTQ+ lifestyle is exactly that – a sin,” the email continued. “And the LGBTQ+ Agenda is a desire to normalize sin, to impose ‘acceptance’ of sin on others, and to ‘prepare’ a rising generation to view anyone willing to stand up for the truth as hateful, bigoted and narrow-minded. ‘spirit.”

The email then listed seven ways to “intentionally” reject Pride Month: denying money to those promoting Pride Month, speaking out on social media, urging your pastor to discuss “God’s design for human sexuality”, anchor your family in “God’s design for human sexuality”.

Governor Kemp’s office did not issue a proclamation endorsing Pride Month this year, and while ads for Governor Kemp’s 2018 campaign were found on Grindr, it did not explicitly attempt to appeal to the public. LGBTQ voters, even failing to respond to a GLAAD LGBTQ acceptance survey. During his tenure, he consistently advocated against the LGBTQ community. While he signed SB 164, which modernized Georgia’s HIV laws, he also signed HB 1084, which creates an athletics committee with the power to ban trans youth from playing on gender-affirming sports teams. gender. He not only signed the bill, but he also personally visited the House and Senate chambers during the final hours of the session to push lawmakers to pass it.

Governor Kemp’s anti-LGBTQ leadership has had an impact on the state. According to a report by Out Leadership released this month, the 2022 Out Leadership State LGBTQ Business Climate Index, Georgia ranks 33rd in the nation for LGBTQ equality with a state index score of 52.73 out of 100. In the category ranking the governor’s political and religious attitudes, Georgia received one, the lowest possible score on the five-point scale.

“The data reflects a troubling trend: Too many states are mortgaging their future in order to discriminate against LGBTQ people,” the report read. “Despite the best efforts of a few governors who oppose their legislative counterparts, states are betting that short-term victories in the culture war will outweigh long-term losses in recruiting talent, innovation and consumer confidence.”

Governor Kemp will be re-elected in November against Democrat Stacey Abrams. Voice of Georgia contacted Governor Kemp’s office for comment and received no response.
